@Payless:  This sounds like fun!  I’ll give it a shot =)

1.  We met at a Thanksgiving Halo party at a friend’s house, but didn’t start dating until he was home again a few months later on leave.

2.  I was 16 (17 when we started dating) and he was 19.

3.  We’ve been together for…almost 8 and a half years now!

4.  He joined before we met so I wasn’t around for that part, haha.

5.  Naval Station Great Lakes.

6.  After.

7.  Too many to count by now!  Thankfully most are on the shorter side.

8.  I’m honestly not sure lol.  A couple months in maybe?

9.  I did!  And he said it right after, else I would’ve hurt him lol.

10.  Yep =)  Love all of his uniforms, actually!

11.  The separations, whether it’s from him thanks to a deployment or from loved ones thanks to a PCS.
